Bega’s Theatre Onset is excited to present Venus in Fur by David Ives at the Candelo Town Hall in March, 2021. The play features Amber Little and Jesse Tankard, and is directed by Mahamati.

So far Thomas has found no-one up to playing his lead, Vanda. He’s about to give up when a sexy, brash and seemingly clueless actress barges in and demands an audition.
As a storm descends on the city outside, Thomas and Vanda embark on a journey that will challenge him and define her.

And the Lord hath smitten him and delivered him into a woman’s hands …
